Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~ October 21, 2011

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…We were at the beach!  We had a wonderful, relaxing, sun-filled week at the beach.  The weather was downright beautiful…70’s and sunny for most of the week! 

We did have two more sick days, ds4 actually spent most of his birthday day in bed with a fever {from the never-ending cold of 2011} Sad smile.  But he felt much better the next day and we celebrated his 5th birthday then Smile.

In our homeschool this week…I took a pile of seashore books so we could identify all of the shells we found and all of the shore birds we spotted…otherwise it was full-on vacation time from the school books Smile.

I am inspired by…the awesome beauty of God’s creation…how can you doubt His power after witnessing a sunrise over the ocean?

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…We shared the beach house with an assortment of grandparents, great grandparents, aunts and friends.  Most of our days were spent by the pool {our beach house featured a private one Smile} or on the beach.

My favorite thing this week was…watching ds9 take like a fish to the swimming pool.  He has taken swimming lessons every summer for the past three or four years.  This summer he finally got the hang of it and actually began enjoying the water. 

During our vacation he swam almost every day.  He became a pro at swimming underwater, dh also taught him how to do somersaults and handstands in the water.  He was so proud of himself, and I was too Smile.

I’m grateful for…vacations and downtime with my family, off-season beach vacations {cheaper and less crowded}, healthy kiddos…
